Rider training taster session available in our indoor training yard, on Saturday 24 March 2018 (booking essential).
Ever fancied the thought of riding a scooter or motorcycle, but not sure if it’s for you?
Then come along to our Taster session day and take advantage of our indoor training yard for a taster session, where you will have fun and learn the basics on one of our Suzuki 125cc motorcycles, regardless of the weather outside.
The sessions will each last 90 minutes starting at 9:00, 10:30, 12:30, 14:00, 15.30.
Bring a friend as there will be 2 spaces available per session. The price is £25.00 per person, and if you book your Compulsory Basic Training course with us following your taster session on the day you will receive that £25.00 off the price of the CBT!
We will provide protective clothing, gloves and a helmet. You will need to wear a pair of sturdy boots (but no steel toe caps).
Please arrive 15 minutes before your time slot to get checked in.
A Full or provisional car photo-card licence is required (if you have the old paper style licence please also bring photographic ID) and a sense of adventure and fun.
Hot refreshments will be available throughout.
To book your taster session, contact the rider training team on 0131 478 6661 option 4 or please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) is the first step to getting you on the road and requires no previous experience.
At Saltire we will provide you with a bike (Suzuki Van Van RV125 or automatic scooter) and any clothing you need to borrow, except boots. Once you have completed your CBT, you will qualify for a discount in our clothing department, so you can start building up your own bike kit.
Prices are as follows:
CBT Monday-Friday – £160
CBT Weekends – £175
The CBT has a curriculum set by the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and was introduced in 1990 with the aim of increasing skills for learner motorcyclists and improving road safety. It is made up of five different elements, some in the classroom, some in the training yard and lastly out on the road.
Saltire Instructors will only take you out onto the public highway once they feel that you are confident handling a motorcycle, and safe to do so. Traditionally, the CBT course is one full day, but can continue for another half day or so, depending on how individual students get on (or if the weather causes problems!)
Learners will be expected to use the roads safely and legally, so we highly recommend that provisional licence holders read The Highway Code before undertaking a CBT. But remember, The Highway Code is for life, not just for learners!
